Having the right people in a medical office can be challenging for many reasons. But if you want to successfully run your own medical office, it would pay to hire a third-party medical staffing company to fulfill all your manpower needs. Once you know about these benefits, it’s highly unlikely you will go back to hiring your own people.
One of the main benefits of medical staffing services is that it makes your life easier. If you hire in-house, you will need to devote precious time and resources in going through verifying applications.
By hiring a third-party to staff your office, however, you don’t need to do the “dirty” work of verifying certificates and qualifications. Sometimes medical offices hire personnel not knowing that the people they hired have professional certifications that are expiring within a month or so. Third-party medical staffing companies make sure that everyone onboard has up-to-date certifications and that whatever information is found on the resume is correct.
Another benefit of hiring outside staffing services is that you don’t need to advertise open positions, which cost money if you advertise in traditional media outlets, like newspaper classified ads. Also, you don’t need to interview applicants. Anyone who has been on the hiring committee of a company knows how much of a hassle it is to interview people where you have other things to do at work.
Medical staffing services already have a pool of qualified people to contact for any job opening. Often, the ratio between people and jobs is 3:1, which means that you have a choice on who to hire, and that whatever open positions you have can be filled quickly. Without an outside staffing service, it would normally take one month to three months to fill up an open position, depending on the qualifications of the job.
It’s never easy to properly run a medical office, however, with the right kind of help, it can be easy. Medical staffing services ensure that you are never understaffed and that whoever you have on your payroll is qualified to do the job.
Of course, for providing convenience in hiring people, you do need to pay your third-party staffing service. You don’t need to worry, however, because it’s not terribly expensive.
So if you have positions that need to be filled up the soonest time possible, just go to Google and search for “outside medical staffing services” plus the name of your area.
